Climate Change Action

We, a group of climate activists in Edinburgh, have been sending a message to world politicians who are meeting now in Peru to agree a deal to prevent catastrophic climate change.

Among us, a polar bear, whose habitat is threatened by rapidly melting ice due to rising temperature, dressed as Paddington Bear, a native of Peru but had to leave his homeland.

We were also collecting signatures supporting the Edinburgh Climate Action Pledge which also calls on the City of Edinburgh Council to take urgent steps to cut the city’s greenhouse gas emissions. Edinburgh Council has a target of 42% cut in carbon emissions by 2020.
